What is Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction ?

As  Jon Kabat-Zinn creator of MBSR explains: 'Mindfulness-Based Stress  Reduction (MBSR) is a well-defined and systematic patient-centered  educational approach which uses relatively intensive training in  mindfulness meditation as the core of a program to teach people how to  take better care of themselves and live healthier and more adaptive  lives. The prototype program was developed at the Stress Reduction  Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.'
